Architect: Greig Ling
Set on a wonderfully secluded plot, this four-bedroom converted studio with two roof terraces occupies the site of a former Boosey & Hawkes factory. The building is set back from the road and approached through a peaceful communal garden. The interior of the studio was redesigned by Andy Greig of Greig Ling architects.
Accommodation centres around a very large double-height living space with a gallery walkway that leads to the first-floor kitchen and master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. Bi-fold doors in the kitchen open onto a decked terrace with access to the large roof terrace. Three further bedrooms, a snug, a study and a family bathroom fan out from the main space on the ground floor.
A striking pair of mirrors in the main living space remain from when the building was converted to an artist’s studio in the 1920s, and serve to accentuate the volume of the room and reflect the light from skylights in the pitched roof.
There is a garage en-bloc which is available to purchase by separate negotiation.
The house is set back from the road, positioned quietly between Fulham Road and Chelsea Football Club, built against the old stadium wall. The King’s Road, with its excellent selection of shops, restaurants and bars, is a few minutes’ walk away. Sloane Square, the Royal Court Theatre and the Serpentine Gallery are close by, along with Battersea Park and Chelsea Physic Garden. The RHS Chelsea Flower Show is held annually in the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea on the Chelsea Embankment.
The Fulham Road is very well served by public transport. Fulham Broadway Underground station, a five-minute walk away, is on the District Line, and there are a number of buses that run into Central London along Fulham Road. The nearby A4 provides quick access by car to Heathrow Airport (approximately 35 minutes), and the south west of England.
